  1. Serious question though, where do you put the “end product”? Just throw it in the trash? Not trying to be smart or anything, just curious 🙂

  2. So you’re gonna tell me that you don’t have no black cats, roman candles, or screaming mimis?


    Oh come on, man. You don’t got no lady fingers, fuzz buttles, snicker bombs, church burners, finger blasters, gut busters, zippity do das, or crap flappers?

    No, I don’t.

    You’re gonna stand there, owning a fireworks stand, and tell me you don’t have no whistling bungholes, no spleen splitters, whisker biscuits, honkey lighters, hüsker düs, hüsker don’ts, cherry bombs, nipsy daisers, with or without the scooter stick…or one single whistling kitty chaser?

    No… because snakes and sparklers are the only ones I like.

    Well that might be your problem. It’s not what you like, it’s the consumer

  3. this is a repost of course, underneath the ammonium dichromate is a quantity of Mercury Thiocyanate, the traditional pharaoh’s serpent.

  4. Very vibey! How?! Would love to attempt a replication.

    Are the close up shots in slo-mo (was hard to tell on my phone).

  5. Can anyone describe the actual risks of this, both environmental and to individuals? Beyond just being heavy metal pollution, i think i’ve read that ammonium dichromate is also carcinogenic, for example. Is it worse before or after being burned? What’s given off when it burns, and are the combustion products especially bad? I know they used to do this demo in schools.
